“If the musicians ain’t got a chance to live, then what chance has the music got?” Dr John


In the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, music can save the soul of the city, but can the musicians save themselves? The multiple award-winning feature documentary ONE NOTE AT A TIME pays homage to the musicians who courageously returned to their hometown of New Orleans after the devastation of one of the most deadly and destructive storms in American history. It is also the story of a unique medical facility with the motto ‘Keeping the music ALIVE.’


ONE NOTE AT A TIME features the stories and the music of Clarke Peters, Dr John, Kermit Ruffins, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Irma Thomas, Hot 8 Brass Band and there are final interviews and performances from the late Walter Payton Jr, Wardell Quezergue, Herman‘Roscoe’ Ernest III and ‘Uncle’ Lionel Batiste.
